Why We Need Missionaries

Why We Need Missionaries

Why do we need missionaries? Missionaries play an important part in sharing the Gospel with people. Without missionaries in the world less people would hear the Gospel. Especially in places where Christianity is not allowed.

Global Frontier Missions states, “It is estimated that of the 7.47 billion people alive in the world today, 3.15 billion of them live in unreached people groups with little or no access to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Joshua Project, there are approximately 16,800 unique people groups in the world with about 6,900 of them considered un-reached. The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and less than 10% of missionary work is done among these people…”

The 10/40 window consists of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. How many people do you know actually go into the world and share the good news of Jesus?

Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 1

Persecution In The Name of Christ Part 1

Did you know there are many Christians around the world who are persecuted? What do you know about the persecuted church? Places such as N. Korea, China, Somalia and Iraq persecute Christians by holding them prisoner, beating or killing them. You can see it on the news, read it in the newspaper, hear it on the radio or by word of mouth. Why is it important to know about Christian persecution? First, getting educated about these things can help us know how to pray for those going through persecution. Second, it opens our eyes to see what goes on in the world. Third, it gives us a chance to see that prayer changes things.

When I think of persecution I think about Paul in Acts. Beginning in Acts 8:1-3 we see that Saul gave approval for Stephens death, destroys churches and goes from house to house putting people in prison. In Acts Ch. 9 we then see Saul become a new man. Instead of persecuting Christians he became a man of the opposite nature with a new name; Paul. Paul went on to preach the Gospel after his conversion and loved people. People heard about Paul’s conversion and were amazed at his transformation! God can change a persons heart. Even those who persecute Christians. What are your thoughts on this? Stay tuned to read “Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 2.” Part 2 will cover one mans testimony of his experience in a N. Korean prison.
